Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

  • 99 Contour Alt fuel light flashing.....

    My 99 Contour alt fuel light is flashing a steady continuous rhythm. I am looking for someone who might be able to diagnose it. I have read so many Compuvalve horror stories, but I am hoping for some help with this. I replaced the 5 Amp CNG fuse and the Alt fuel light now only flashes a steady pulse whenever I drive the car. If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate it.

    I don't know where you live in Utah, but you can try taking it to the Car Doctors in Pleasant Grove. They've worked on my Contour and they are cheaper than the Ford dealer in Sandy for the same procedures. Is it still running on CNG when the light is flashing? Any bucks or jerking while its running on CNG?

      Would it run on CNG when the light is flashing? I always thought that meant it was not running CNG? Only a steady green light is good.

      Mine kinda bucked a little when the green light was solid. I thought that was a transmission problem that the contours are prone to having.
